The forecast may call for highs in the 50s and a good chance of rain, but what's new? It's spring in San Francisco, at least technically, and this weekend is packed with events that will give you a great reason to go outside -- unless you're planning to drive anywhere. The weekend's most high-profile event may be a special incarnation of Sunday Streets, that once-experimental, now-permanent outdoor fixture that hits a different SF neighborhood each month. This weekend it's hitting JFK Drive through Golden Gate Park and the Great Highway in the Sunset for its second showing this year, in conjunction with events in 1,319 other cities worldwide for World Health Day. If spending a cold Sunday in the colder Sunset doesn't sound appealing, Japantown will also be shut down nearly all weekend for the annual Cherry Blossom Festival, the Hellenic Cultural Parade shuts down Market Street for much of Saturday and the Cesar Chavez Fest takes over the lower Mission on Saturday as well.
